According to the AN Hosting about page:
AN Hosting was born in early 2001 as a small, two-man shop in a basement office near Chicago. That changed quickly as the company grew and progressed over time.
In 2005 AN Hosting was acquired by midPhase hosting, and now collectively hosting over 150,000 domain names on a network of over 1,000 servers supported by true 24/7 phone, E-mail and live chat tech support.
We like to keep it simple at AN Hosting, and don't believe in hidden costs or gotchas. We only offer one web hosting account but when it's as inclusive as ours, why offer more?
AN Hosting is proud to be recommended by numerous open source projects including WordPress, Mambo, Sub Dreamer, b2evolution and many others.
AN Hosting hosts more blogs than anyone else, hosting tens of thousands of independent blogs. AN Hosting has won numerous hosting awards for customer service and support.
We know that YOU are most likely coming from a bad hosting experience. We're good at just one thing: keeping your website online and smiling ;-)
